The drummer for iconic British band Primal Scream is set to take part in a scientific drumming test.

The experiment, which is a collaboration between Blondie drummer Burke, the University of Chichester and the University of Gloucestershire (UG), aims to learn more by applying scientific principles to drumming and disseminate information that will lead to increased enjoyment and improved wellbeing.

"It has been fascinating for us to apply our skills and knowledge to drumming performance," said Dr Steve Draper, UG principal lecturer.

"The Clem Burke Drumming Project has illuminated the demands of an underestimated form of physical activity."

Meanwhile, it was recently announced that Mark Richardson of Skunk Anansie is to put his drum sticks into action at Drummer Live.
